Housekisho Richard-shi no Nazo Kantei
(Two episodes watched):|
My first thought was that this might be a boy's love series, what with the handsome and mysterious Richard, but that didn't turn out to be correct. It looks like this will be about Richard and Seigi working as a team to investigate pieces of jewelry about which there are unanswered questions. Their first case, namely Seigi's ring, was modestly interesting but not exactly fascinating, and in order for me to watch the entire series subsequent ones will need to be better. The case in episode two didn't intrigue me much either; for one thing, the conclusion was unclear--will this woman go ahead and get married, or not? Is her problem solved? We learn a little about different gemstones, where they come from, what symbolism they carry, etc. I had never heard of them sometimes being heat treated, so that was interesting. But these little nuggets of information aren't exactly enough to make watching the entire episode worthwhile, so I think I will pass on this show.
